Rob serves as a member of the School Design practice area, which trains and supports principals with the deliberate organization of their school’s resources—talent, time, money, and technology—to optimize student outcomes. Rob recently finished working with the State of Georgia on their Race to the Top Resource Allocation project, which conducted an in-depth analysis of resource use across five school districts. He’s currently working with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, analyzing district resource patterns and working closely with a cohort of principals on their school designs.
Formerly, he spent two years teaching 8th grade pre-algebra in Greenville, Mississippi. During that time, he also served as one of two coaches for the middle school football team and worked in the after-school program to tutor children after the traditional school day ended. After teaching, he earned his master’s in public policy from the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.
Outside of work he enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and making new dishes. He also finds time to catch baseball games whenever he can and follow all things relating to Michigan football.
